It wasn't too bad if you were a young white male. Plenty of opportunity, new fields opening up.

If anyone cares
The fifties. By David Halberstram is a marvelous telling of the period. Brings a lot of insite into the nation we became.

The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

That might be because they're not including crimes like wage theft & poisoning people's drinking water

I grew up in an urban area and it didn't feel that way at all, in fact it was quite a bit better than where I'm living now in terms of mental health. Depends more on the specific area in question than its population density imo

Those aren't crimes committed by the people in rural poverty though. It's by industrialists, financiers, and lobbyists who live in urban areas.
